Subject: Good vibe
This is one of my favorite shows of the tour. The jam out of Xeyed (or is it into Alligator) has a genuinely exploratory feel, the best of the tour IMHO. I also love the set closer New Potato>Creampuff. No More Do I is a gem from the Warren days. (Check out the version with Warren's Dead back at Jones Beach in 2004-08-13.)

Subject: out of my skin
What a night! Almost missed it too, though sometimes blessings come in unrecognizable packages. Had tickets to the Shelburne VT show, though at last minute was canceled and the day we realized that we quickly bought tickets to this gem.

Borrowed a GPS that took us down some back roads, successfully sidestepping the traffic and bringing us down through empty roads and beautiful hillsides into upstate NY. Got there a bit early giving us time to settle in and probe the scene. Beautiful venue, from the minute we breached that hill I knew it was going to be a good night. It had been a picturesque day and could only get better from there. As the music started, everyone was grooving and with plenty of space to do so. Though I will admit, dancing on a hill can sometimes not be the easiest thing with unsure footing. Psyched about the cross eyed, alligator truckin, and really feelin the vibes at this point. I remember as the sun started going down the light became more golden, bobby's guitar was just glowing in the rays. spectacular. second set started with the beautiful sage and spirit. Oh man are the keys on point of WHAT! boy I was at the show in Lowell as well and I gotta say I'm continually impressed. ....Fireworks far off in the valley exploded as the dark settled... and settling in was the spirit of the night. Venus took her throne high in the darkness and soon following he, the sky became dotted with those teeny pinholes of light, only a suggestion of what might be on the other side. dark star space sent many people away as I saw crowds of walking back up the hill to leave..."gettin a little weird" =P or perhaps long drives ahead... so purging aside, we remained and within that space/star the stage appeared to me as if a alien space ship had landed right there. Melting lights and energies percolated like dew till I found myself out of my skin. And within all of this a powerful thought passed through me, ushering in the first riffs of terrapin, washing over like a revelation. What a treat, I can't quite tell you enough. The Terrapin Suite, something I never thought my ears would ever have the privilege of deciphering, was tattooed upon my heart that night. Such love in this music. Such love.

I am ever grateful for what these boys have shared with all of us, and grateful for the tapers, for allowing some to re live and for others to experience.

Subject: Sugar Mag through UJB!
This show doesn't necessarily hold up as an outstanding show front to back. First set is average, although "Feelin' Alright" is fun, jammed out, and probably the highlight. The second set is slow to get cooking. But don't miss the stretch beginning with Sugar Mag and ending with Uncle John's. I agree with a previous reviewed that "No More Do I" is truly a highlight, "spacy and funky at the same time." Interesting jazzy chord changes, too - almost sounds like a Steely Dan tune to me.

Then we get a great, long Dark Star that blasts off after the verse (although the May 28 Mountain Aire soundcheck is still my favorite version by this band). Then Furthur brings out their showpiece, the full Terrapin suite. Wrap it up with Stella and UJB and you have a fantastic hour-plus of music not to be missed!

I also think this is best the sounding seed of this show, better than a soundboard.

Subject: No More Do I
Nobody mentioned the wonderful version of "No More Do I" yet, which continues to be the high point of Furthur recordings for me (there was another brilliant version of it on February 15 in Bethlehem, PA). The background vocalists basically sing lead, and the band's playing is spacy and funky at the same time!

Subject: On The Bus Again
It was 30 years ago I did my first Dead tour. Being at this show reminded me of that feeling of freedom I felt at those first few shows. Then I got into taping & somehow lost that sense of freedom to go where the notes blow me.... & the beats drive me.

Walking up the short hill from the lot didn't prepare me for what was on the other side. A vast vista of the Mohawk Valley spread out for all to see & at the bottom of the long steep hill was the stage.... looking so far far away that it felt like you were flying towards it & as you descended the hill coming into focus was that altar of music we know as the Dead. Spent most of the first set up front on Phil's side... until all the drunks started rolling in from the forces of gravity & inertia took control of the alcohol possessed bodies & knew it was time to head to higher ground....

Relistening to this now, I feel so blessed to have been a part of it for so long. So many high points during the evening. 5 different fireworks displays going off in the distance during Dark Star>Terrapin to name one......

I Love the fact that these Quality recordings are so easily obtained these days, days if not hours after the show. It's one of the reasons I stopped taping them. So I can play more & enjoy it when I download it when I get home. This leaves me more time to record other local friends bands. Thank You Tapers for capturing & keeping the music alive for all human kynd.

Subject: WHAT A SHOW!!
Excellent show, and a damn good recording!!
We were waiting for this show since the tour was announced, and it lived up to all the anticipation and then some. Attended the first night in Asbury Park in December, and the Atlantic City show in February but this tour IMO has already gone so much FURTHUR!! Maybe it was the summer wind, maybe it was the heady NY treats, maybe it was the company, probably all of the above, but it definitely had something to do with the lands at Gelston - this show for me was the best incarnation of the good ol' Grateful Dead I've ever had the pleasure to be a part of. Missed poppa jer by about a year or two, but this for me was close enough.

As far as the traffic goes . . I got two separate staff members to admit that it was a calculated trickle in, for which we can only imagine what they thought they'd be stopping. As a result, not only did they have a raging lot scene taking place hours before the show, but also a parade of popped hatches and side-car strolling heads getting things going if we were on lot yet or not. The big question in my mind during our 2hour+ crawl over the mere 2mile long back road entrance was how the hell are they going to have moedown here!?? Somehow around 7:30 as we entered this mystically beautiful venue approaching our decent to the stage we struck up a conversation with a wonderfully pleasent man named Slyvin who answered my question, for he was the landowner of this great place!! while talking he mentioned moedown and how they'd be putting in 10's of roads to better handle all of the traffic - what a nice man he was casually perusing the lands stopping strangers just to shake their hands - what are the odds?? . . . needless to say, from that point on, the night seemed to flow in some other-worldly way onstage and off.

The show itself was just incredible . . absolutely loved the early Dead stuff in the first set -
I mean c'mon . . Golden Road, Alligator, New Potato>Cream Puff War>Viola Lee!!!????
and then a complete Terrapin in the second set . . . like an excerpt from my dream setlist this show is now and may always be my favorite (that i attended).

-thought I was hearing the notes for "Heaven Help the Fool" in the first few seconds of the 2nd set sage & spirit jam opener.
-i'm thinkin "Seven Hills of Gold" has some potential.
-loved hearing Terrapin, but to hear the best version this tour IMO see 6/26 with Kenny Brooks on Sax.

GO SEE FURTHUR! If this ain't close enough to pretend . . then what is.

dreaming and scheming our next show,
Kamala

Nice job, thank you for taping & posting. I too love the Mountain Jam riffs out of the Alligator. The 2nd set opener is indeed "Sage & Spirit" from Blues for Allah. Beautifully done.

This is a wonderful show despite the traffic woes. Excellent airy and well balanced recording. 5 summer stars.

Man, these shows are just stellar!! I'm am missing being on tour but loving hearing them on archive! Great job tapers!! Thank you so much! Looking forward to the west coast leg of the tour...

Subject: Killer show and recording
Loved the show, especially the first set. This recording is tops. It doesn't get any better. Thanks !
Reviewer: typicaldaydream - - July 5, 2010
Subject: Great
The first set was almost an exact replica of Rochester Highland Bowl, I would have been upset with this but i was too high on eating nearly and entire gram of molly by accident. The second set was a gift, from the boys. After the entire album order of LWAF-TS-AAS-TF i poop a little, I thought the set was over, done. Then a spine tingling Stella Blue that made me grip my lover close. Great quality on the rec. Got it up fast, the last two days I've been dying to relive the terrapin. Thank you.

love the mountain jam tease out of alligator...
Reviewer: landon - - July 5, 2010
Subject: Really Fantastic Show!
I have been very impress with this tour so far. I got to see the July 2nd show in Columbus which was really nice with the fireworks and all.

This setlist is killer and the band sound really tight. All three recording seem very good, however there's just something about this one that my ears really liked.

Thanks to the taper and thanks to Furthur for this music.
